I love it when my R wants to nurse from me. And I intend to continue breastfeeding him until he wants to. Our breastfeeding wasn't as smooth sailing as it looks.
Breastfeeding was a big challenge especially during the first time. I had my fair share of challenges when Y was born, the first day I went back to work after my maternity leave, my family and even with some of friends. But I surpassed them all because of the support I got from my husband and "breastfriends".
Y when she's three months old!
Last year, author Teresa Gumap-as-Dumadag a[[roached me to share my breastfeeding story. I took this opportunity so that I can share my experience can reach more people. And I'm happy that I did.
I'm on page 186!
This is the first breastfeeding book by a Filipino author. What I love about the book is it tells breastfeeding success stories of different moms from all walks of life. When I shared my story, I was still working full time, when the book was launched, I was and still am an awesome mompreneur! :) Heehee!
